I finished block 15 this morning. Not sure I really care for this one so much.
The colors looked okay when I picked them, but assembled, not so sure about it. But, hey, you don’t see any ugly ones when they’re all put together.
Someone asked my plan the other day and I can only share what it is…today. And, there’s a good chance it will change. But, right now, I plan to sash them using a garden path setting, with the light background color on the two outside edges, which will make the blocks look a little bigger, and I have a beautiful mottled yellow and lime batik for the center strip. A garden path setting is three narrow strips in the sashing and the cornerstones are pieced X blocks so that the center strips of the sashing end in a point at both ends.
This quilt has a garden path sashing.
Today is Rob’s birthday. He’s chosen for us to go antiquing and have lunch in one of the small towns. We always love to do this; even Sydney has a good time. I’ll take some fingerwork for the drive and we’ll have a blast to celebrate his big day…not the BIG day, he’s still not there yet, but a big day nonetheless.
Sydney is about to start baking his birthday cake. A carrot cake. All by herself. Who else is scared?
